Support » Fixing WordPress » Can’t Add to Menu

  • I’m trying to add a link to the menu on my site and I get this message, “403 Permission Denied. You do not have permission for this request /wp-admin/nav-menus.php.

    But I do have permission. I built the site and just today I updated a page.

    Why would it be telling me this?

    I’m using Appearances > menu > custom links. In the space provided. I then add the link and then below that I place the link text.

  • The “403 Permission Denied” message appears after I click “save menu”

    Thanks!

    Hey @pasqualerose,

    it seems to me you are trying to add an admin page to the public menu and I’m not really understanding why you’d want to do that: can’t you just add the page you created as a regular menu item? Or am I missing something…?

    If the error message appears after saving and you have the word admin in your post’s title, you might want to have a look at you .htaccess file. If it says something like:

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} admin [NC,OR]

    I’d suggest you to try changing it to something like

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} wp-admin [NC,OR]
